Genesis is the newest offering from the master leather technicians at Crest Leather’s tannery in Chiampo Italy. The goal was to create a leather that would have some of the chalky look and soft hand of a nubuk leather but that would perform like Crest’s collection of protected semi-anilines. The result is Genesis and it is an amazing leather with a velvety soft hand but a finish that does not mark and is easy to care for.
Genesis will show an uneven tone as the light plays off its finish furthering the illusion that it is a soft suede.
Genesis is so new we have just started making pieces out of it. The reviews of the first pieces have been outstanding.
Genesis is a versatile leather that is especially well suited for contemporary or modern pieces and which would bring an updated look to traditional or tufted pieces.
